Rosyth Estate

Set in a 62 acre private working tea and rubber estate, The Estate House at Rosyth, offers a unique opportunity to experience the beauty of rural Sri Lanka. Escape into a bygone era, built in 1926, as a tea planter’s bungalow and at the time a 350 acre estate, it has been owned by the same family for the past 35 years.

Perched on a hillside, and situated at an elevation of approximately 1,000 feet, the house benefits from stunning views from the front veranda towards Kandy and the surrounding ranges of hills, 20-30 kilometers away. The Estate House has been completely refurbished and expanded to create the feeling of a family hill country retreat and today operates as a boutique hotel. Whilst the original design remains unchanged, the house today offers outstanding accommodation and facilities. With high ceilings, cool polished cement floors, wide verandas, elegantly furnished rooms with eclectic works of art, this is a perfect place to immerse yourself in estate life, unwind, rejuvenate and explore. There are just seven bedrooms, four classic and three deluxe rooms, each with an individual character and charm.

why we like it

Just a few minutes’ walk from the house is the local tea factory and whilst not part of the estate, the factory is open to visitors to  understand how the tea grows and is turned into fine tea for export. Many concur that Sri Lanka Tea is the best in the world. Explore the estate, join the ladies plucking two leaves and a bud from the tea bushes, or see how the rubber is tapped.
